CCE's Avalon Attracts Two Buyers

Best, Siegel join L.A. unit.

Promoters Rich Best and Greg Siegel have joined Clear Channel Entertainment's Avalon Attractions team in Los Angeles as talent buyers.

Best has been with CCE in Minneapolis since 2002; his responsibilities included booking all arena activity in the Dakotas and Wisconsin. In L.A., Best will book and promote shows at amphitheaters and arenas throughout Southern California.

Siegel was most recently a talent buyer for West Hollywood's Troubadour. He will focus his talents on the clubs and theaters in Avalon's territory, including the Avalon in Hollywood.

Tommy Ginoza will replace Best as talent buyer in Minneapolis. Ginoza moves out of the CCE Touring office to handle club and theater bookings in the Midwest, supported by CCE Chicago VP Scott Gelman at the arena level.

Best and Siegel report to Avalon president Brian Murphy; Ginoza reports to CCE Midwest president Mark Campana.
